Mission, Vision, Values
The Edmonton & Area Land Trust has as its vision an Edmonton region where natural area systems are valued, preserved for future generations and play a key role in the social, economic and environmental life of the residents of the area.
The Edmonton & Area Land Trust will be recognized as a not-for-profit leader in the selection, securement and stewardship of natural area systems, appropriate natural interconnections and cultural heritage landscapes in the Edmonton area primarily for the use, enjoyment or benefit of its present and future citizens.
The values that will guide the operations of the land trust will be focused on a respect for nature based on its intrinsic value and the value of its ecological goods and services, best management practices in all its operations, a commitment to meet the needs and be accountable to the community and leadership in innovative partnership building in the process of planning and delivering its land conservation programs.
